Subject Re: Jenkins: what Java versions are available for building with Maven?
Date Thu, 08 Jan 2015 19:06:22 GMT
switch to JDK 6 was done for 3.2
see the reference http://maven.apache.org/docs/history.html

and even if Maven requires JDK 6, you can use toolchains or animal sniffer to 
compile for Java 5:
- toolchains'logic is to compile with JDK 5, even if Maven uses a JDK 6,
- animal sniffers' logic is to compile with the JDK that runs Maven with -
target 1.5 then to check/sniff that only JDK 5 API is used

Hervé
